SKYRIM ALCHEMY FIXED
Alchemy Rebalanced and Exploits Fixed

Skyrim's Alchemy is fun, but hokey. You can spam Restore potions, exploit crafting by looping Fortify effects, and rare ingredients are often unrewarding (like Nirnroot). This mod reworks Alchemy to be more fair and rewarding without "feeling like a mod".

No more Fortify Crafting exploits
Potions and Enchantments that Fortify Smithing/Alchemy/Enchanting enable absurd, limitless tempering and enchanting. Sure, you can just ignore this exploit, but I've reworked it so the remaining, unique sources of Fortify Crafting become valuable artifacts. Instead of enchanting whole "Crafting Outfits" and chugging Enchanter Potions, go find The Forgemaster's Fingers, Muiri's Ring or Ring of Pure Mixtures, or the artifacts of Ahzidal.
- ingredients have had Fortify Smithing/Enchanting effects replaced
- random equipment with Fortify Smithing/Alchemy effects should no longer appear
- unique equipment that Fortify Smithing/Alchemy/Enchanting can no longer be disenchanted

Potions restore over 5 seconds instead of instantly
- consuming a new potion that restores the same attribute will replace the current effect
This ends potion-spamming and makes combat more interesting. Minor potions become useless at higher levels. Ultimate potions restore 100 per second (this usually makes them better).

120-second elixirs instead of 60
- we all know 60 seconds is too short

Effects rebalanced
- player-made Restore potions will be stronger, Ravage effects are more useful, and rare ingredients are more powerful (Nirnroot, Daedra Heart, etc.)
- new Dragon ingredients dropped from slain Dragons have the most powerful effects
- cook Venom Powder from Frostbite Venom, a new ingredient that damages health and stamina

Recommended Mods

For Dragons
Diverse Dragons Collection + Bellyaches HD Dragon Replacer + Dragon Remains
Convert and Tweak your old copy of Dragon Combat Overhaul + Less Dragons 2016
Pretty much perfects Dragons in Skyrim. Also, actual corpses make more sense for ingredients than bare bones.
I do not recommend Enhanced Mighty Dragon - it's not properly converted and the fights are weird & boring

For Enchantments
Summermyst or Simple Magic Rebalance - SMR switches Fortify effects to strengthen spells instead of reducing costs, while Summermyst just adds these alongside vanilla (among its 100 new enchantments). No need for both, I just recommend you grab SMR if you're not a Summermyst fan.

My Other Uploads
MorrowLoot Ultimate - a deleveling overhaul for Skyrim built off Trainwiz's Morrowloot, SAF pairs well with an unleveled world
ChocolateNoodle's Little Balance Mods - some cool changes that I couldn't find elsewhere on the Nexus
Subtle but Classless - Racial Skill Bonuses now make those skills level faster instead. Every skill starts at 15.

Compatibility
Perk mods that affect "Benefactor" will conflict without a patch (Ordinator version included)
Any other mod that affects ingredients and potions
Some leveled lists are changed, check your mods in SSEEdit and use Wrye Bash if necessary
